SURF TO SOCIAL
Our goal was to create a swim short that combines traditional tailoring with technical swimwear performance. The six-part cutaway waistband, custom side tabs and rear darts are inspired by a traditional men’s trouser. The result is a versatile swim short that looks bespoke – no need to sweat over wardrobe changes when the sun’s out.
MAKE A SPLASH
Crafted from 14 different elements, the Clovelly is the result of a pursuit to craft the perfect swim short. It all starts with the fabric. Our technical nylon undergoes a mechanical brushing process in which fine, metal brushes carefully rub the fabric to produce ultra-fine fibres, creating a buttery soft handfeel, similar to a premium cotton.
FROM PARIS, WITH LOVE
With pristine beaches and luxurious day parties lining the Côte d'Azur, the French understand the need for a premium and versatile swim short. That's why we partnered with a family-owned French mill that is the undisputed leader in technical swimwear production.
The Clovelly Surf Life Saving Club was established in 1906, making it one of the oldest of its kind. To this day, the Clovelly SLSC watches over the hundreds of summer beachgoers sprawled across the unique concrete esplanades and floating in the ocean inlet. Our swim shorts celebrate this spirit of summer in Sydney – a spirit underpinned by adventure and an affinity with life lived by, on or in the water.

I love these shorts they fit so well and look great!
Highly recommend purchasing yourself a piece from Jack Acre - chances are you wont stop at one as the quality is great and the fit is perfect.
Best pair of swim shorts I've ever owned. Feel great, look great, amazing!
Flattering fit. Love the tailored look!
Best swim short on market. Love the softness of the brushed cotton. I actually find the fit better and more flattering than my Orlebar Brown's.
Re-stock the navy!
Love my black Clovelly's. The most comfortable swim shorts I have ever had. Well worth the investment. Now for the navy in 2021.
